HC Deb 06 March 1981 vol 1000 c218W
Mr. George Cunningham

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department what means are being adopted to test the accuracy of electoral registers in his Department's examination of that matter.

Mr. Mayhew

This Department is discussing with the Office of Population, Censuses and Surveys and the Hansard Society for Parliamentary Government proposals for studying the accuracy of the electoral register. Final decisions have not yet been taken, however, on when or how such a study might be undertaken.
